Grant Bronsdon | Lookout Landing: Mariners prospect Logan Gilbert will be called up and make his major league debut Thursday. Gilbert is ranked 28th by MLB Pipeline and is Seattle’s second-best pitching prospect behind Emerson Hancock.

Eric Stephen | True Blue LA: Dodgers corner infielder Edwin Ríos has a torn labrum and will require season-ending surgery. Ríos had a chance to cement himself on LA’s bench this season, but he never quite got going. When he was placed on the injured list, he was in the middle of an 0-for-32 slump.

Scott Coleman | Talking Chop: Mike Soroka will have exploratory surgery on his achilles tendon. Soroka was originally supposed to be ready by the end of April, but now it’s unlikely that Soroka will be able to play at all this season.

Quick Hits

Gerrit Cole struck out 12 batters in 8 innings Wednesday night. He has now struck out 56 batters since the last time he walked one.

Miguel Cabrera became the all-time Venezuelan-born hits leader.

Jesús Aguilar hit his second home run in two days to help the Marlins to a 3-2 win over the Diamondbacks. Aguilar is now hitting .291/.377/.581 for a 157 wRC+ on the season.
